He was with the Elite bass, so he probably had "punished" the black Fender-P bass on the previous concert. During Knebwoth he did smash the red one at the end of 'Ga Ga' (you can see it on Rare Live) but the bass wasn't deeply damaged - he still used it for 'Friends' and 'Champions'!
John hated HS. Fred's fave singer was not PR. Roger didn't compose 'Innuendo.' Witness testimonies are often inaccurate. Scotland's not in England. 'Bo Rhap' hasn't got 180 voices.
